Abstract

The absorption spectrum of water vapor has been studied quantitatively with a resolution of approximately 0.12 cm<sup>-1</sup> between 475–692 cm<sup>-1</sup>. Several methods of extracting the intensity and line-width parameters from the measurements on 19 well-resolved lines are compared and discussed. The intensities show deviations from those calculated for a rigid asymmetric rotor, which are attributed to effects of centrifugal stretching. Half-widths are presented for H<sub>2</sub>O-H<sub>2</sub>O, H<sub>2</sub>O-N<sub>2</sub>, H<sub>2</sub>O-CO<sub>2</sub>, and H<sub>2</sub>O-He broadening at 80°C and for H<sub>2</sub>O-air at 24°C.
